Stage 2 - Sunday, May 13: Tempio Pausania - Bosa, 203 km

Starting in the small northern Sardinian town of Tempio Pausania, Stage 1 heads east along the Gulf of Asinara, then through Sassari, the main town of that area, then it goes south over the Villanova Monteleone climb before descending to the finish in Bosa.

Milram's Ale-Jet Petacchi will be looking for the sprint win, but he'll have to get past CSC's emerging fast man JJ Haedo (see interview) and fend off Predictor's Rockin' Robbie McEwen.
